Boccia

Boccia    

Boccia is a sport designed for disabled athletes and can be played by individuals, pairs, or teams of three.

Competitors take it in turns to propel leather balls - coloured red or blue - as close as they can to a white target ball, or jack. The balls can be moved with hands, feet or, if the competitor's disability is severe, with an assistive device.

At the end of each round, the referee measures the distance of the balls closest to the jack, and awards points accordingly. One point is awarded for each ball that is closer to the jack than the opponent's closest ball.
